Multi-Spectral Imaging of Rock Art in Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park contains some of the oldest artworks in America. They consist of petroglyphs and pictographs incised and painted on rock walls displayed for hundreds and in some cases, thousands of years.

Through spectral photography, Bud Turner is able to reveal elements of this ancient artwork, aiding in their preservation and restoration. This ongoing project is made possible through Canyonlands Natural History Association's Discovery Pool.
